CDC floats next health scare, post-coronavirus

Just in time for the new school year, virtual as it may be, comes a new warning of a new fright for parents to deal with, and more likely than not, wait for it, wait for it, for government to cite as justification to keep schools closed, and maybe even churches and more -- and it's one that goes like this: Acute flaccid myelitis.

Susan Rice, VP contender, wants to 're-imagine' away the police

- The Washington Times

Susan Rice, former national security adviser and potential Joe Biden vice president pick, said police need a massive "re-imaging" -- meaning, a total rework. Meaning, a total reshaping. Meaning, a total collapse. "Re-imagining" is code for watering law enforcement to the point where they're no longer law enforcement.

Trump, not Obama, helped Blacks

Is it dumb for Black Lives Matter not to show 100% support for the reelection of President Trump? Mr. Trump, not Barack Obama, did the following: He brought opportunity zones to minority neighborhoods; restored funding for historically black colleges and universities; achieved prison reform largely benefiting Black inmates; supported school choice; and used deregulation to shrink Black unemployment to record lows. Is it simple-minded not to recognize progress and want more of it?

Thousands of students across the nation are set to resume in-person school Monday for the first time since March. Parents are having to balance the children's need for socialization and instruction that school provides, with the reality that the U.S. death toll from the coronavirus has hit about 155,000 and cases are rising in numerous places.

Democrats use fear to control and dominate

- The Washington Times

A new poll from Gallup shows that 85% of American parents who identify as Democrats worry their children will contract COVID-19, but only 29% of those who say they're Republican express similar concerns. That's about right. Democrats, by nature, are fear-filled scaremongers.
